Calabi-Yau CFTs and Random Matrices

Using numerical methods for finding Ricci-flat metrics, we explore the spectrum of local operators in two-dimensional conformal field theories defined by sigma models on Calabi–Yau targets at large volume. Focusing on the examples of K3 and the quintic, we show that the spectrum, averaged over a region in complex structure moduli space, possesses the same statistical properties as the Gaussian orthogonal ensemble of random matrix theory. nimaaj, ashmore, ar X iv :2 10 7. 11… Expand

Weighed average over Narain moduli space as $T \bar T$ deformation of CFT target space
We consider the weighted average of a two dimensional CFT, whose target space is T 2, over its Narain moduli space. We take as the weighing function the integral kernel which gives rise to T T̄Expand


Numerical Ricci-flat metrics on K3
We develop numerical algorithms for solving the Einstein equation on Calabi?Yau manifolds at arbitrary values of their complex structure and K?hler parameters. We show that K?hler geometry can beExpand
Constraints on 2d CFT partition functions
A bstractModular invariance is known to constrain the spectrum of 2d conformal field theories. We investigate this constraint systematically, using the linear functional method to put new improvedExpand
Conformal invariance of supersymmetric σ-models on Calabi-Yau manifolds
The possibility of superstring compactification on Calabi-Yau manifolds is analyzed in the light of recent work by Grisaru, van de Ven and Zanon, and by Freeman and Pope. It is shown that despite theExpand
Geodesics on Calabi-Yau manifolds and winding states in non-linear sigma models
We conjecture that a non-flat D-real-dimensional compact Calabi-Yau manifold, such as a quintic hypersurface with D=6, or a K3 manifold with D=4, has locally length minimizing closed geodesics, andExpand
Modular Constraints on Calabi-Yau Compactifications
We derive global constraints on the non-BPS sector of supersymmetric 2d sigma-models whose target space is a Calabi-Yau manifold. When the total Hodge number of the Calabi-Yau threefold isExpand
Moduli-dependent KK towers and the swampland distance conjecture on the quintic Calabi-Yau manifold
We use numerical methods to obtain moduli-dependent Calabi–Yau metrics and from them the moduli-dependent massive tower of Kaluza–Klein states for the one-parameter family of quintic Calabi–YauExpand
Refined swampland distance conjecture and exotic hybrid Calabi-Yaus
A bstractWe test the refined swampland distance conjecture in the Kähler moduli space of exotic one-parameter Calabi-Yaus. We focus on examples with pseudo-hybrid points. These points, whoseExpand
Eigenvalues and Eigenfunctions of the Scalar Laplace Operator on Calabi-Yau Manifolds
A numerical algorithm for explicitly computing the spectrum of the Laplace-Beltrami operator on Calabi-Yau threefolds is presented. The requisite Ricci-flat metrics are calculated using a methodExpand
Modular bootstrap revisited
A bstractWe constrain the spectrum of two-dimensional unitary, compact conformal field theories with central charge c > 1 using modular bootstrap. Upper bounds on the gap in the dimension of primaryExpand

We use machine learning to approximate Calabi-Yau and SU(3)-structure metrics, including for the first time complex structure moduli dependence. Our new methods furthermore improve existing numericalExpand
